It’s obvious why the Cowboys are the favorite going into this Wild Card Weekend. They have one of the top offenses in the playoffs, and they are coming off of a high scoring win against the Eagles.
Their overall squad appears to be unstoppable; the Cowboys defense are great at getting turnovers.
But let’s not forget about the 49ers who have an underrated defense that will definitely come into play. They will give the Cowboys O the pressure they need to contain them and keep up with the points.
And yes, we will need to point out Jimmy G’s hurt thumb, but he also showed what he can do with that hurt thumb in their victory in week 18.
I expect big plays on both ends, but the 49ers will come through with the upset. I will side with the dog and take the 49ers.
